More than twelve months ago Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership started to work on a project to commemorate the evacuation of children from Tyneside to the Haltwhistle area by train in 1940.  With the help of project partners, Wallsend Local History Society, we traced numerous former evacuees who were able to relate their memories of the evacuation and their lives with new families. The events involving former evacuees and local school children planned for summer 2020 had to be put on hold.

A project to revive the waiting rooms and redundant wooden buildings at Haltwhistle Railway Station has seen work start.  This is the biggest project that the Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership has led and will create vastly improved waiting areas for passengers and new studio and office space.

Friends of Blaydon Station received a major boost recently when they discovered they had been nominated for, and been given, the Angel Award, which was presented to them by the MP for Blaydon, Liz Twist.

Even with the country being in a state of lock down, working and planning continues. Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership (TVCRP) recently held its first online feedback of the Lyric & Line project, which has seen singer and songwriter Gareth Davies-Jones working with three groups with additional needs, using music and songwriting to facilitate experiences of rail travel. The pilot project was funded from TVCRP’s resources and it is hoped that using music to facilitate communities’ voice will continue.
